Positive Energy

Now let's see if we can create some positive energy. The dollar will not go belly-up if Jews are en masse doing teshuvah for the sin which has set this process in motion. The Jews from Gush Katif and the Northern Shomron are still in tremendous pain. Feeling their pain before the expulsion and stopping the expulsion could have curtailed the process that we are now experiencing. Let us all raise our monthly or annual contribution to help the Caravilla folks, many of whom are living in utter destitution. http://english.katif.net/ is a good place to start. Contact Dror Vanunu at the following email and tell him that you want ot make a contribution: gkatif@netvision.net.il , or call Buddy Macy 1-800-283-3969 or from outside the U.S. or Canada 973-785-0057 for details. His PO Box number is on this web page.

Over the next week I will attempt to get information up on this website in the sidebar so that those who link to this site can make a contribution over the internet to help out the destitute families who were made destitute by the expulsion fiasco of the summer of 5765 (2005). Let us strengthen the dollar by appealing to G-d's mercy for our collective crime against our own humanity. Giving dollars to these folks who have received so little help from official Jewish organizations will do more to strengthen the dollar than the Federal Reserve can by raising interest rates!

Dov,

Did you see Baker Yemach Shemo unveiling is cut and run from Iraq plan today in the US, he also wants to pressure Israel to Give back the Golan to Sirya, Oh' it gets better, he wants Iran to be involved in this PIECE prossess. America "AM-RECA" is finished it's only a question of time. When the US troops in Iraq start comming to the Golan whatch out!
Can you figure out the significance of today Kislev 15 as the announcement of the end of America?

I will find a link for a credit card contribution and will publish it in the sidebar on this blog, bli neder, within the next couple of weeks.

As far as the significance of the 15th of Kislev, Kislev is the month of the talmid chacham. His attachment to the Almighty allows for his prayers to always be heard and for his "Sagitarian" or archers arrows to always hit their targets accurately. The Maccabean victory is the classic case in point. The impossible victory of yeshivah students against the mighty Greek army was a miracle beyond imagination. America is a braindead society right now with no moral compass pointing the way to the path of human decency. Its star has fallen. As of the 17th of Cheshvan it seems to have completely severed its conection with G-d. It is groping now in the dark with some very evil men taking over the reigns of American foreign policy. Baker, Scowcroft, Gates, and others will destroy the U.S. by way of their follies. These men have no moral compass and look at foreign policy as a way to enrich America rather than a way to enshrine American ideals. In the attempt to make America wealthier at the expense of the Jews, these men will probably send America into poverty. Stop them if you can.

interesting seeing the 2 headlines nexxt to each other

Ten US soldiers killed in four incidents in Iraq Wednesday


Robert Gates’ reference to an Israeli nuclear weapon was synchronized with Baker’s exclusion of Israel from a Mid East conference. The Senate confirms Gates in defense by 95-2 vote

Re: the 15th of Nissan:
If you divide the year into 6 parts of 2 months each, you have:
a) the 15th of Nissan - where we went from slavery to freedom
b) the 15th of Sivan - ???
c) the 15th of Av - where we go from a period of mourning to one of joy
d) the 15th of Tishri - where we serve Hashem with great joy (ושמחת בחגך)
e) the 15th of Kislev - ???
f) the 15th of Shevat - another joyous holiday
But if the pattern holds correct, it should be a good day for the Jews, even if this doesn't seem so. So, don't worry about what that Sar Ha'ofim Baker has to say. He'll get his due.

Also, I found in Wikipedia that Rabbi Yehuda Hanasi died on the 15th of Kislev. The Gemara in Sotah says that when Rebbi died, humility and fear of sin were nullified. These may be America's two worst traits.

Prognostications as such are time-consuming exercises in matching gematria. When the exercise is completed, what actions have been taken and what goals achieved? Akin to a program, a theatrical rendition in which the observer is merely a spectator and not a participant.

Yes, yes...the deeper point.

The land has been defiled. The blood upon the land in all lands, not only Eretz Yisrael. The land has been defiled.

Those self-proclaimed pillars of righteousness have forgotten the word "tsayneeyot," humility. They have not lived and held on to the most fundamental concept: ani lo klum...lo klum.

The blood flows. It flows akin to a river, and the earth screams, for the earth cannot absorb it all. To the end, are we so righteous as to think we are the origin of the light that is held to all nations?

Division. Division of all akhim versus akhim...and in the end it comes to divide the divider.

For if you spit into the air, have no doubt it will return to your face. Division, to cause the neshamim to scream in agony.

Ashkenazim against Sephardim. Sephardim against Hassidim. Hassidim against Yeminim. Rabbinim against any not Orthodox, against Karaiim, and finally, all with their hats thrown into the ring against goyim...the very ones we are to be the light unto.

Soon, the wolves will ring, and division will be taken into account. Cry for the land! Cry for thy brother, who is oppressed by the judgements rendered that cause him to stumble blindly upon his path! Oh, they uphold the differences, until the very light they are to uphold, the light of Torah, consumes them, for they are of different substance than the light.

May the Living G-D open the eyes of all those who blind themselves.

Correction here: Im an American. When Baker and them, take from Israel or anyone else they are not doing it for my family, or my neighbor etc benefit or with our blessing. They rob from us too. anything they do that is evil, when they are judged, we recieve that too, so we hurt. A lot of us Americans love HaShem, and Israel, when you hope for speedy illwell for my country, remember us over here that think the world of you. What will happen to us, when all this collapses?

I posted a former comment anonymously, because I was unable to enter a name. I will enter it here, within the comment. My former entry concluded with prayer that the Living G-D open all blind eyes.

A message to Dov: my wife and I struggle to make aliyah a reality next year. I would love to meet you. My heart goes out to you, for I know that you feel every word you have written.

My heart goes out to all of you, my brothers and sisters, my Jews.

For division is futile, and the phrase "my Jews" is for all of us. We must take "possession" of "us," so to speak: the pains and sufferings of each and every Jew must be upon all of our hearts!

For too long has there been division, strife, and contentions. Torah unites us: Torah is both our direction and our goal.

Oh, that I would give my life that all could unite in love and compassion...even for those who have proclaimed themselves as our enemies!

Yeshayahu 66 proclaims the end result of all, fear not:
From new moon to new moon, and Shabbat to Shabbat, all flesh will come to worship Me.

Praise G-D! Let the thunder rumble in our hearts for our love for Him! For all of His creations, be they yehudim or goyim!

For surely if we obey His Torah and pray with all of our heart, and soul, and might, He will pity our hearts, fashioned by His hands...His blessed hands...to bring the light forth, that all men, women, and children come to Him.

We must resist ourselves each day to focus upon Him, our G-D, our Strength, our Rock and Redeemer!

Oh, Dov bar Leib, may G-D bless thy hands that write your words...Emet!

All who would write to me are welcome. I am a poor Jew in the things of the world, but the things of the world are of naught, and the Living G-D has provided all I need. All letters are welcome:
Yesha Galluzzo
988 Duvall Hwy
Pasadena, MD 21122 USA
tel. 443.243.1601
If any who read this wish to visit or need a hot meal, a bed, or just a listening ear, our home is always open.
May the peace of the Living G-D be with all of you; my heart is with klal Yisrael.
Next year in Yerushalayim, we pray,
Yesha Galluzzo

Dov, would you comment on Rabbi Tzadok's interview on Israel National Radio. He states that Olmert is a gilgul of King Herod (and he is not Armilus) and gog is NOT G. Bush.
Also.... he says there is no need for us to feel compelled to make aliyah, we are put in our particular countries in the diaspora for a reason, and we should not feel bad if we cannot make aliyah.
(well he himself is in the US)
What do you think of Olmert being King Herod?
Interested to hear your comments.
Thanks

I guess these economists and WND are rubbing their hands in glee over this new report---just tickled pink that they and their countrymen may have to suffer a catastrophe. Either that, or they are simply concerned that people they care about have all the information they need to make the best decisions possible at a bad time in history.

"People in the U.S. are going to be hit hard," Chapman warned. "In the severe recession we are entering now, Bush will argue that we have to form a North American Union to compete with the Euro."

"Creating the amero," Chapman explained, "will be presented to the American public as the administration's solution for dollar recovery. In the process of creating the amero, the Bush administration just abandons the dollar."

If anyone was or (is) a gilgul of King Herod, it was Ariel Sharon. King Herod was a convert from Edom, and Ariel Sharon's mom had a suspicious conversion which was never accepted by the Rabbanut. According to the Redak, King Herod or Agripas his grandson was also called "The Shepherd" just like Sharon. This is of course The "Foolish Shepherd" from Zecharia 11 and 13.

I respect Rav bar Tzaddok, but I respectfully disagree. The main area of disagreement seems to be that Armilus according to Kol HaTor is the last leader of the Erev Rav not some European conqueror. He seems to ignore Kol HaTor as a source about the End of Days. I will call him about this, and G-d willing, let you know what he says.

I just checked with the Radak. Surely enough the Foolish Shepherd from Zech 11 is none other than Herod. The shepherd from Zech 13 is the premessianic shepherd who would be incapacitated by a stroke. See my post "Travail of the Shepherd" This would make Ariel Sharon none other than a gilgul of Herodus the Great, the Edomite slave of a Hasmonean king, who converted to Judaism and became a Roman pawn. How fitting.

have been having a rush of inspiration since the bulb went off in my head that Ariel Sharon is the gilgul of Herod the Great. Amongst the many similarities and ironies:

1. Both are arguably the most prolific builders of Zion in their respective times.

2. Both went certifiably insane at the end of their lives.

3. Both were questionably Jewish
Herod from a forced conversion by a Hashmonian king and Sharon whose mother converted with no intention of teaching her children mitzvot. Yet, both were publicly proud of their supposed Jewish heritage.

4. Herod was afraid that some of his children might kill him. Sharon was afraid of the attourney general Snake Mazuz and would have done anything to keep his sons out of prison.

Yesha I was not posting my comment, in reaction to yours. You did not offend me. No I feel very sad over here, I feel this terrible pall and dread I cant explain it, that something, like the floor is about to fall out, and I'm grieving for my country. I xcant explain it, but so many people around me are asleep, they place their value on their things, etc, its like it could never happen here mentality. I had heard the Chapman comment, Dr Jerome Corsi today commeted on it in an interview I heard. He said that essentially, our government would quickly use the Amero to buy out its debt, but all us citizens, most of us will be in extreme poverty like Argentina. While I'm used to it, how many are going to go postal etc, because they lost everything? We really need to prepare and hang onto HaShem, He is our whole value.

Dov,
Im reading your notes, on the connection between Sharon, and King Herod. I heard the interview to the Rabbi, he said no place is going to be safe, that there will be a loss of one third of life. OK, He talked about G-d intervening in the War with perhaps a natural disater In the book of Reveletions they have something that comes from the sky and poisons the water and everything, called Wormwood that kills one third. From what I understand Revelation, is taken from a Jewish ancient text, do you know the book, and are there English lesson on it, so we can better understand this time right now?

I am not sure why our teshuva would help save some foreign government and currency. It would be a strike against the United States and would remove the economic incentive for Jews to remain in the US and likely increase already growing antisemitism.
It is positive for Hashem to eliminate the other distracting powers and make himself our only hope.
Let the Americans do teshuva then perhaps they will merit some kind of redemption, I just hope that it will not come at the expense of the Jews like in Ninveh.

"Feeling their pain before the expulsion and stopping the expulsion could have curtailed the process that we are now experiencing."

Im sorry but this is too funny. The only way then and now to have stopped all this would have been civil insurrection. Over in Arutzsheva,every time Olmert or Peres do something you can bet your moneythe comment section will be filled with oaths and bible quotes of how god is gonna fix their wagon.
You talk about how pitifull the americans are, well its not about them that the Rebbe Kahane wrote to paraphrase "That amazing human being called the Jew, so clever at business, so talented in the arts, always so charitable and positivley contributing to all society wherein he dwells, so dedicated to educatinon.. AND YET SO ASTOUNDINGLY STUPID WHEN IT COMES TO SAVING HIMSELF"
It was true when he said it over twenty years ago and its even truer now. We are in the middle of a great holiday wherein you know that the heroes did not sit around singing kumbaya at JewFest for the soon to be homeless.
If Israelis dont want to take Haman out and hang him and his ten or so ministerial sons, then dont complain when the gzerah signed by the kings signet comes to pass.
And part of the problem is self appointed Mekubalim who really are Mebulbalim, and know all would be seers and prophets who have the people dreaming and sitting around them with awe and their heads in the clouds while this country goes to heck.

I spoke to Dyan Fried in Jerusalem today, he says that the lack of rain and the reduced parnasa connected to the drop in the dollar (most averechim are payed based on the dollar) are directly tied. I did not have a chance to ask what the tikun was, maybe tomorrow if he is in the beis midrash.

I think you will find that rather than a drought developing, what happened here is only a delay in the start of the rains. I predict that we will see heavy rains throughout the rest of the season which will more than make up for what was missed earlier on. If you notice, it is much colder than usual as well. I think it will be seen that this is a result of global climate change and Israel's weather will no longer follow its set pattern of the recent past.

As to avreichim's stipends being linked to the dollar, that is a serious error in thinking and planning on the part of those in charge and should be addressed immediately.

Is anyone following the weird weather we are getting here in the US. seemed to start with Seattle sttom, now blizzards, windtorms, knocking out power to thousands. Grocery prices are getting higher weekly. If a lot of livestock die in these blizzeads beef will be real high here, not to mention the economic impact on farms. i don't know how this ties in but I see Hashem's hand in all this.
